Blue and White Ceramics

Some of the beautiful ceramics we saw at the Shanghai Museum. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. We did not see all the exhibits, only the ceramics, calligraphy, Chinese seals and jade galleries. Now where are those pamphlets I brought back?

At each level, there is a little gift corner where you can buy reproductions or items related to each gallery. It was fun to see what they had for sale. But there is also a larger gift shop on the ground level with everything you could imagine. As they did not charge for admission, we decided to support them by getting two items - a book on Ancient Chinese Jade and a ceramic water decanter for painting. It fits in your palm perfectly.


  1. Gorgeous photos, must have been lovely walking around seeing all those beautiful items.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Margaret,
    I did have a lovely time. My favourite gallery was the Chinese seal which I will wrote a blog post soon. I took many photos too. So glad you enjoy these photos.
